Torture porn I think was inevitable for a certain strain of horror.I think it's really sick. I was shown Hostel which I hated, but it was Wolf Creek which did it for me. I don't find it scary, but just the worst sort of exploitative tripe.
If a there is a trend that emphasises gore, then as time passes (and effects get more impressive) then torture porn was always gonna happen.
I can't watch it.
I like movie violence, like Tarantino and what not, but that stuff is clearly not real.
Torture porn looks like it's really happening.
It may be a generational thing as none of my contemporaries are particularly impressed by the genre.
So, maybe it's not made for the likes of me.
I caught a few minutes of Hostel and saw this young lad, tied to a chair, about to be tortured.
I couldn't think of single reason to keep watching and switched back to the snooker sharpish.
